The Exercise in a Chair Program - on CD and mp3
A gentle exercise program to bring you health and wellness
There is no doubt that our modern way of life is making us increasingly inactive, and that inactivity is accelerating all our chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, anxiety, depression and even certain cancers.
But the purpose of my Exercise in a Chair program, is not to dwell on all the negative, but to show you that positive change, even starting with small positive change, is beneficial to health and recovery. You see, it is possible, even likely, that you became inactive due to ill-health, an accident, gradual decline, age or even depression. Whatever the reason, it is true, isn't it, that the less exercise you do, the less you want to do?
We all know inactivity creates serious health problems long-term and that OUR BODIES WERE DESIGNED TO MOVE, not sit in a lounger all day. But so many of us just don't have a clue where to start reversing that trend. This is why people join a gym, go mad, hurt themselves, conclude that exercise is not for them and quit.
But what does it mean to be more active?
To many the thought fills them with dread. Is it going to hurt? When will I find the time? How long before I see results? Yes, becoming more active involves moving more, but here's one thing that's true. The minute you start your health risks go down.
Everyone can benefit, whatever your age, limits, size or physical condition. Moving more is NOT training for a marathon. Simple, gentle chair exercises to start you off, improve circulation and keep your joints and muscles supple. Gradually you will improve your general fitness, reduce stiffness and pain in joints, even inflammation brought on by inactivity, and help to relieve stress.

There are many more benefits to getting started with the Exercise in a Chair program, but you will encounter these in your own time. Gentle effective exercises will help to improve flexibility, reduce painful joints and muscles, gain strength, help you relax and improve your overall fitness.
What better way is there to get fit than to sit in your favourite chair and move your arms and legs? You could be on the edge of your bed, at your desk or dining table, or in your conservatory. You can do this in the privacy of your own home, so you needn't feel 'on display' with others. Or, you could feel comfortable doing this with a companion, so you keep each other company and motivated.
What about if I am in a wheelchair?
The Exercise in a Chair program is perfect for you and accessible to everyone. If you've had your chair long, you will already appreciate the way being sedentary affects the body and limbs. The exercises are designed to be an easy way to gain greater flexibility and increase stamina, one of the first things to go when restricted to a chair, making it very easy to regain improved health and fitness.
How long are the session tracks?
The CD has 3 tracks on it, each 23 minutes long. The exercises are the same for each track, but I changed the music of each track to give a little variety. So, if you listen to track 1 for a week or two and want a change, just go to track 2, and then track 3.
23 minutes seems a long time to start with, can I do shorter sessions?
Yes, of course. Your CD player has a pause button as does your mp3 player. If you find 23 minutes too much to start, begin with 5 minutes and build up your time over days and weeks. But to be fair, each exercise is directed at one limb at a time and then moves around the body to another limb, allowing you to rest in between before going back to the same point. We're trying to improve your mobility and flexibility, not wear you out. So don't worry, take things at your own pace.
I am recovering from surgery, will this help me?
Always best to just run this past your GP or consultant, but most will be only too pleased that you are doing gentle, manual exercises, as these will often aid in your recovery and speed up rehabilitation.
